Chrest Christensen
Hans Andersen
I J.J. Petersen do swear that I will support the Constitution of the United States of America, and that I do absolutely and entirely Renounce and Abjure forever, all Allegiance and Fidelity to every Foreign Power, Prince Potentate, State or Sovereignty whatsoever, and particularly to the Emperor of Germany whose subject I was.
Subscribed and sworn to in open Court, this 17 day of Nov. 1897
Jess Jørgen Petersen
And Now, To-Witt: At a Term of said Court, now being held at St. Paul, in and for the County of Ramsey, in said State, upon the foregoing oath and affidavits, and upon further proof having been made by the production of a certificate that the said J J Petersen did, before the Clerk of Common Pleas Court, Hudson Co New Jersey (the same being a Court of Record, having common law jurisdiction), make the requisite declaration of his intention to become a Citizen of the United States, and to renounce all other allegiance, as required by the laws of the United States.
It is Ordered by the Court, That the said J J Petersen be, and is herby, admitted to be a CITIZEN of the Untied States.
Edward G Rogers Clerk.
By M Norman dep.

From this document, we can glean that he was in Hudson County, New Jersey, prior to moving to Minnesota and that he had been in the US for at least 5 years as of November 1897. Note he renounced allegiance to the Emperor of Germany. This makes sense because the part of Denmark that he lived in was part of Germany when he was born.
